Locals join up to help homeless
November 25, 2020
The weather was dreary the afternoon of Wednesday, Nov. 18.
The sky was dark and rain was coming down in buckets on the Church of Nazarene.
Regardless, a small group of volunteers gathered under the awning, chatting with Jammers, a local homeless man, and waiting for a truck to arrive.
Soon it did. Cascade Timber Consulting Director Milt Moran pulled in with a truck loaded with wood, and volunteers moved to quickly unload every board into shelter from the rain. The plywood and treated boards soon turned into 20 platforms for the homeless to get a bit more shelter than their current tents.
